Law School Applications / New York Law Forum
« on: October 23, 2005, 06:01:30 PM »
I visited like twelve or thirteen schools at the forum...and i think the nicest people there were those from American University.  I think Georgetown was cold in addition to Boston U and Boston Col. 

What is the impression taht other NY Forum goers had?

Law School Applications / Question 13 on the fordham application
« on: October 14, 2005, 05:32:28 PM »
It asks:  List what makes you special (in a nuthsell).  Use more space if necessary and attach addendum.

This smells a lot like a diversity essay..and until reading it more closely I actually thought it was an essay.  Do you think it's safe submitting an essay?

Personal Statement / Diversity statement
« on: October 14, 2005, 04:16:17 PM »
I am midway through writing my 1 page diversity statement.  Most of my friends are indians so I don't think it would be a good idea to have them read it so I wanted to get the opinions of some non-south asians.

send me an email at kkk215@nyu.edu and I will be happy to send over what I have so far.  I want to see if what I am going for is clear and if it is working or not.

I check my email way more frequently than this board so email would be preferrable.

If anybody wants to just tlk about writin the diversity statement then thats cool also.

Law School Applications / Ethics Aside...
« on: October 12, 2005, 01:40:39 PM »
What if I get rejected from my top 10 schools...then that leaves 3 schools I would not really like to go to..but would probably give me some money to go.  So I take their money...then I transfer out after a year to one of the schools I was originally hoping to go to.

i realize what assumptions i'm making.

Question: 
do i get to keep whatever money the lesser school gives me?  or do they only give you money after you have graduated from that institution as a way of keepin u hooked?

Law School Applications / attaching another sheet for extracurric. questions
« on: September 30, 2005, 10:14:00 AM »
some schools give you five lines..some give you six...some give you 3...

It's okay to list extracurric and comm service stuff, but when they ask for details about your duties and all that stuff...you're gonna need some more space. 

question is this:
do you write in teh space given until it runs out then say refer to attachment, or do you just strate up say refer to attachment?

i would much rather do the latter because it keeps the formatting nice and neat.  anyone else have any experiences or tips.

thanks.

Law School Applications / Transferring
« on: January 08, 2005, 11:41:23 AM »
Sorry if this is a repeat post...


if I have no shot at getting into some schools that I want to go to...is it even worth applying to them if I expect to be applying to them again as a transfer applicant?  does it hurt my chances, improve my chances because I am showing consistant interest, or does it not matter either way?

thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Recommendations for Logical Reasoning
« on: January 03, 2005, 10:59:38 PM »
I took the december LSAT and did pretty good...got 21 questions wrong in total.  the thing that gets to me is that out of those 21 questions...18 were Logical Reasoning questions. 

I decided that I'm going to take the test over in October 2005...Until then I'm going to be abroad and I wanted to know is there ANY way I can improve my logical reasoning results...I have the bible and it didn't help me that much.  I was going to buy some formal logic books/textbooks but don't wanna jump into a purchase until i get other people's views on this.  I have a lot of time to put into this so give me some good recommendations...I would greatly appreciate them.

thanks a lot.
